This thread is a place where you can share your team you have a great time with, or a place where to find such teams. They by no means have to be meta, powerful or fast. The main criteria is FUN.
I’ll be keeping the thread updated, highlighting the teams that you have to suggest, copying them here (and giving you credit for it, of course).
Naturally, if I find some you might like - I won’t hesitate to throw them here.
I hope you’ll enjoy fooling around with them, and I’m looking forward seeing what creative ideas you, the community, have come up with
WARNING: Gem Creating Troops are not as reliable anymore. Using different teams is advised as of current patch.
One by one
Sacrifice / Giant Spider / Shadowblade / Prismatic Orb (DK)
Tutorial: Fill Sacrifice and use it on Blue/Green. Use Giant Spider. Never cast kill Shadowblade with Sacrifice. Loop your way till Shadowblade can oneshot - then watch them die one by one.
Avoid: Queen Mab
Anointed One / Villager / Plague or Kraken / Terraxis
Tutorial: The team is made to be A board control practice. Each troop complements the other with gem transforms, with the only exception Terraxis > Werewolf. Terraxis can be cast to fill Villager, never Werewolf. If executed correctly, it has an infinite loop.
Great Maw / Infernal King / Sekhma / Mercy
Tutorial: Fill Maw, devour a troop, with highest priority on Tanks (Gorgotha, Stonehammer) or counter-troops (Mab, Famine). Then enjoy your looping nuclear bomb.
Mongo / Humility / Humility / Mercy
Tutorial: This has none. Have at least 1 humility ready before casting Mongo. The rest … just happens

Queen is Envy
Webspinner / Dark Maiden / Queen Aurora / Queen Aurora
Credit goes to @XLS78.
Gorgotha / Troglodyte / Troglodyte / Prismatic Orb
Tutorial: Troglodyte’s storm increases Gorgotha’s explode chance to hit an extra turn. If board is set right, Troglodyte hits hard.

Green Seer / Giant Spider / Kraken / Plague
Tutorial: Fill either Seer or Spider with either Blues or Purples. Both have +2 from traits and/or banner. Then transform either Reds, Yellows or Browns. Blue if you have no other option. Never Greens or Purples.

Stonehammer / The Dragon Soul / Kraken / Queen Mab
Tutorial: Rush TDS to fill Stonehammer. Bait skulls as much as you need. Then watch things happen.

Boom! Now you see red
Gorgotha / Hellcat / Garuda / Ragnagord
(Brown / Yellow Banner)
Tutorial: Get Garuda up, one way or another. Then start exploding. The storm means you’ll get more cascades from exploding the board.

Rock Troll / Dark Troll / Pharos-Ra / Pharos'Ra
Tutorial: Endless Troll Loop. Be careful not to cast if less than 8 gems are on the board - it might mess your turns. Ra makes sure you keep your loop while one-shotting.

Economy’s Finest or Decisions, decisions…
Gorgotha / Merchant Prince / Bonnie Rose / Gog and Gud
Tutorial: Rush 100+ gold. It takes 1 Merchant Prince cast or 4 cascades.
100+ Gold => Bonnie has priority over everything.
Gog and Gud is fun, but unreliable. But can pretty much oneshot anyone on 125 Gold. Best use is at 60-85 gold, if the cast is enough to finish off the 1st target.
Inspired by @Zippity.
Rage of the King
King Mikhail / Apothecary / Sheggra / Courage
Tutorial: Rush Apothecary as fast as possible. The team will tear apart any tanks, and cannot be stopped by entangle, either. Elemaugrim hurts, though.
Unfair skull advantage
Stonehammer / Courage / Courage / Mercy
Tutorial: Focus on Red gems, fill both courages up, and cast them always on skulls. Keep Mercy against Entangle.

Don’t mess with the Bull
Gorgotha / Sunweaver / Ketras / Runesmith
Tutorial: Feed Gorgotha into Sunweaver. After 1 cast, you should be able to 1-shot. If Ketras gets hit, cast Runesmith on him, too. This team is a bonus-stats killer.
Forest Troll / Webspinner / Queen Aurora / Aurai
Tutorial: Start with troll, and loop according to needs.
Credit and big hands up for @Nephilim
Edge of the Thousand Bites
Gorgotha / Dark Priestess / Gar'Nok / Hydra
Tutorial: Cast Priestess on Hydra. If the enemy blows the barrier away, just get Priestess up again and cast it on Hydra as many times as it can survive. Gorgotha will make sure the spawned skulls won’t hurt you much, but will destroy any barriers on the enemy team Thx to Hydra.
If the enemy doesn’t have anything to cancel the barrier on Hydra - use Gar’Nok for that purpose.
Forest Troll / Infernus / Yasmine's Chosen / Doomclaw
Tutorial: There are many ways to play this. But cast troll on 10+ greens and Yasmine on 16+ greens to make sure you get extra turns.
The rest just happens as you prefer.
Unleash the beast
Black Beast / Apothecary / Herdmaster / Drake Rider
Tutorial: Use Drake Rider for food, and his summon, too. Have a good meal.
Credit goes to Venar.
None can stop the War
War / Valkyrie / Mercy / Abynissia
Tutorial: Search for alignments, use skulls, make sure to have cleanse ready against Entangle and Frozen. War hits like a truck (3 attack per turn).
Bow to the king(s)
Honor / Poison Master / Ketras the Bull / Scorpius
(Undead / Frozen Banner)
Tutorial: Fill Poison Master. Cast him a few times. Cast Honor if you feel like it can connect or if you need the extra armor. Cast Scorpius if 3rd and 4th troops are poisoned (obviously). Ketras Hurts. A huge lot.
